This unpromising black blob is an I-CubeX Orient. Plug it into a fantastically expensive I-CubeX control system and you can control synths by pointing in different directions! Just $92, plus $382 for the starter pack. Perfect if you've just got a huge grant from your local arts sponsor for some kind of site specific installation nonsense. They do have a fairly awesome range of other controllers, to build that perfect bendy/stretchy/breath/humidity/pressure/tap-controlled system you've always promised yourself.
